Here is a good article from Houzz to get your renovation or build off to a good start and stay positive throughout. Listed are 10 great questions that will set a good foundation for communication throughout your renovation or building process.
Communication between you and your contractor sounds like it should be straightforward... but there can be some miscommunications that could complicate the process.
"The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place."
George Bernard Shaw
Over the years I have found that a common barrier to good communication is our individual expectations. Sometimes there are routine issues that come up for me, but they are not routine for the homeowner. And because they feel routine or normal to me I may not communicate enough of the details that a homeowner might need or be expecting, which can lead to unnecessary worries for my clients. I have tried to learn to anticipate and discuss more events, I am not always successful, but I am trying.
If you find that you are worried, or not expecting something, curious or think something was forgotten, it is important to talk with your contractor ASAP so that you both can talk it through and clear it up right away. Communication is a two way street.
Likely, there is an easy answer.
